Description

Take a well-deserved break away from the norm with this luxury overnight stay for two. Choose from a number of beautiful country house locations offering wonderful views and sumptuous surroundings nestled in the British countryside.

Enjoy exquisite furnishings, roaring log fires, splendid gardens, and a comfortable atmosphere at these magnificently restored houses. Although dinner is not included, our locations pride themselves on their delicious food, good wines and personal service.

Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea and light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining. These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, but has not lost a crumb of its charm.

This idyllic retreat makes a perfect gift for someone special. Whether they prefer traditional or contemporary settings, this break provides for both.

This break is a one night stay for two people and includes breakfast and a Traditional Afternoon Tea. Restrictions may apply to certain properties, on specific days of the week and months of the year.

Super stay in a wonderful setting

We used an Xmas gift from our Daughter and Son in Law, and had a wonderful time. Excellent hotel, attentive staff, and the afternoon tea was something to behold!! Lovely room, with fourposter bed, which we didn't expect!!, and nice views over the lovely gardens, which we explored at length later to walk the enormous tea off!! Great experience all round and thank you one and all. One downside?? Very minor one though. Coming from the south, the satnav finished in the middle of the village, a mile or so from the hotel!! Had to ask at a local shop. Perhaps another sign in the village would help, or maybe I messed up on the settings, who knows?, but a good stay otherwise!

A very welcoming hotel.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Little Silver Country Hotel, which is in a great location.From the first moment, when we were made very welcome by the owner, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our spacious room had a comfortable bed and alovely bathroom with thick, white towels. The delightful dining room looked out over a very pretty garden and the food was excellent.

Would def recommend it!

The afternoon tea was the highlight for me. Sat by big windows looking out on to Windermere and the hotel gardens we sat and enjoyed our food which was fantastic. The merewood hotel is in a good location but prob needs a little update in decor but other than that it’s fantastic. Would def recommend it

Amazing cream tea

Very friendly hotel owners, reception staff were excellent. Hotel is quite secluded and a little dated but very clean and had lots of character. The cream tea was huge!
